8 mo. Pup Post Neuter - Some Observations (Behavior)

Murray is 8 months, rescue and was neutered about 3 weeks ago.

Before the procedure....

Extremely nippy, major wanderer, insanely food driven-hyper, and overall a very rambunctious pup.

Post procedure (3rd week)

Loves to lounge, as in lay down anywhere in the house and CHILL, as in observe activity around him. Before he would have to say hello, by barking, sniffing, or nipping at your feet no matter what.

Still very eager to chase any type of ball and will chase it vigorously, but the speed and enthusiasm at which he returns has definitively changed, he'll "jog" back - not sprint like his life depended on it.

His protectiveness of me and his immediate surroundings (my workplace and mu house) has increased 5-fold, he is much more territorial and protective and will bark at the sight on any unrecognized person that comes in one of these two places.

Maybe his changes in behavior are merely coincidental and have nothing to do with the operation but I do strongly feel alot of that crazy "Monkey Energy" is out of his system and he's a lot more control of his emotions -- if that makes any sense?

My 2 cents...

Do I have any regrets on the neuter? Not really... but I suppose these is some truth to a male's mojo or lack there of and castration.

It is very possible that his change in behavior has nothing to do with the operation but the fact that he won't have all those hormones going crazy like they most likely were can and really should have atleast some affect on him.
Like I stated before one of the main reasons I like to have my male dogs neutered is to cut down on the constant wanting to wonder and mate which also does give them a chance to take a breather and think about something else if you get what I mean.

Hormones take longer than that to leave the system

Sounds like a red herring to me. Enjoy it either way!!

yea, I get what your saying and appreciate the feedback as always. It's just amazing to witness first-hand his transformation from a super hyper active 4th grader with severe ADD to a high school stoner who lounges all day and is a little too passive about life.

I will note again that he's become alot more protective of his immediate surroundings and especially me, as I write this entry he is laid out underneath me and quick to bark at anything or anyone that approaches.

no complaints here, he's really become the dog I've always wanted just shocked at how quickly he's changed given how young he is.
